  40. 40. Do you think the GIS community is playing a significant enough role in planning Next Gen 911 (vs NENA, Providers and CAD vendors)? Do you think NG911 will be able to survive catastrophic events (i.e. Joplin, Japan, Haiti, cyber-attacks, etc)?<br />
  41. 41. What are your thoughts on ‘cloud type’ infrastructures?<br />
  42. 42. Thoughts on OSM?<br />
  43. 43. Thoughts on Esri Community Basemap?<br />
  44. 44. GIS, 10 years from now, looks like...<br />
  45. 45. Who are the 'up and coming' players (companies, organizations, people) we need to start watching? Who are we wasting our time with?<br />
  46. 46. What are your thoughts on the intersection between traditional GIS and new technologies that seem to be arising every day?<br />
  47. 47. What are your thoughts on the intersection between traditional GIS, 3D and BIM?Building Information Model???<br />
  48. 48. Is Open Source a viable option for government agencies that need to maintain "official" or "authoritative" data.<br />
  49. 49. Why should government use social media tools?<br />
  50. 50. Do you use any social media tools? Why?<br />
  51. 51. What are your thoughts on the use of Google Maps, Bing and other mapping APIs by government? Pros and cons? Pitfalls?<br />
  52. 52. As mapping/GIS becomes more ubiquitous with many products geared towards non-technical users (Google Earth), how do you see that impacting the GIS profession and professionals?<br />
  53. 53. I've looked at your slide-share re: mapping a state budget. I'm curious what the impetus was to produce such a map, if the results were what you expected, and if the final product had any impact on state or local policy.<br />
  54. 54. What trends are you seeing with respect to expert communicators who are not GIS pros being part of consulting teams? <br />
  55. 55. As spatial data become more available to a broader variety of end users, how concerned are you about quality and appropriate use?<br />
  56. 56. Is GIS a profession, or a software tool?<br />
  57. 57. Have GIS user groups passed their heyday -- much like the PC user groups of the 80s?<br />
  58. 58. How do you explain to friends, family, or the uninitiated what GIS is and its impact?<br />
  59. 59. Thoughts on MARXAN and MARZONE and their utility for decision support/alternative scenarios compared to other GIS software (ESRI etc.)<br /><br />
  60. 60. What advice would you give someone thinking about getting into the GIS field?What are the 3 main skills someone needs to be successful in today's (and tomorrow's) geospatial workforce?<br />
  61. 61. I have heard a lot of "talk" about location-based marketing, but are you seeing any trends toward consulting firms or their clients allowing non-GIS experts who are experts in communication being invited into the tent to collaborate in new ways?<br />
  62. 62. Who are your favorite “presenters” in the business and how important is the presentation to clients in terms of getting contracts? Best practices?Good Presenter @pmbatty<br /><br />
  63. 63. Do you have recommendations about how best incorporate the expanding use of smart phones' spatial technology applications into governmental practices?<br />
  64. 64. In these challenging times with shrinking budgets and competing priorities, how do you keep spatial technology relevant in the minds of key stakeholders?<br />
  65. 65. Are we asking the right questions?<br />
